About the book

Pattern Recognition is a very important issue due to its use in companies, businesses and real-life use considering each time more and more data are generated.

The automatic interpretation of big data is by the extraction of patterns and the field of Pattern Recognition has a great role in extracting information and decision making.

This book presents the most actual research and main topics on Pattern Recognition, including Machine Learning, Dimensionality Reduction Methods, Deep Learning, Knowledge-based Recognition, Case studies, and Emerging technologies and applications related to Pattern Recognition, although other topics can be included, too. The most innovated advances on Pattern Recognition will be included in this book, in order to show the reader new research and developed approaches.

Specific applications are also welcome, like Security, Medicine, Robotic, GIS, Remote Sensing, Industrial Inspection, Nondestructive Evaluation, Biometrics, Biology, etc., which will show the reader real and actual use of Pattern Recognition.

He is a Full Professor of Signal Processing and Pattern Recognition and the Head of the Signals and Communications Department at ULPGC, teaching signal processing and learning theory since 2001. His research includes biometrics, biomedical signals and images, data mining, classification systems, signal and image processing, machine learning, and environmental intelligence. He has researched in 51 international and Spanish research projects, some of them as head researcher. He is co-author of four books, co-editor of 24 proceedings books, guest editor for eight JCR-ISI international journals, and author of up to 24 book chapters. He has over 440 papers published in international journals and conferences (72 of them indexed on JCR–ISI-Web of Science). He has published seven patents in the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office. He has been supervisor of eight Ph.D. theses (12 more are under supervision) and 130 masters theses. He is the founder of the IEEE IWOBI conference series and president of its Steering Committee, the InnoEducaTIC conference series, and the APPIS conference series. He is an evaluator of project proposals for the European Union (H2020), Medical Research Council (MRC–UK), the Spanish government (ANECA-Spain), Research National Agency (ANR-France), DAAD (Germany), Argentinian government, and Colombian institutions. He has been a reviewer in different indexed international journals (70) and conferences (220) since 2001. He has been a member of the IASTED Technical Committee on Image Processing since 2007 and a member of the IASTED Technical Committee on Artificial Intelligence and Expert Systems since 2011. He will be ACM-APPIS 2021 General Chair and IEEE-IWOBI 2020 and 2020 and was ACM-APPIS 2020 General Chair, IEEE-IWOBI 2019 General Chair, APPIS 2019 General Chair, IEEE-IWOBI 2018

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Ivana Barac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
